Interfaith & Multicultural Rally

After the events of last week in Dallas, Baton Rouge and Minnesota, the City of Allentown is coming together to support our police and stand-up for communities of color.

An Interfaith & Multicultural Rally will be held outside Allentown City Hall at 6 o’clock tonight.

Mayor Ed Pawlowski has called community leaders together asking that they join in being a visible force in our community for non-violence.

Speakers include:
• Mayor Ed Pawlowski
• Chief Keith Morris, Allentown Police Department
• Rev. Charles Olmeda, Pastor Third Day Church
• Rev. Dr. Larry Pickens, the Lehigh Conference of Churches
• Shirl Comick, Allentown NAACP
• David Jones, Lehigh County Commissioner
• Flor Velez, Puertorrican Culture Preservation Organization
• Naji Latefa, Muslim community
• Tyrone Russell, Community Action Committee of the Lehigh Valley
• David King, One Love Allentown
• Cantor Kevin Wartell, Temple Beth-El

“We are constantly working to bring unity to our city,” said Pawlowski. “It is important that we show that despite tragic deaths in other areas of our country, we in Allentown cannot and will not be pulled apart.”
